    Summary

    Essek has always preferred sleeping to trancing. Like his lack of reverence for the Luxon, this quirk puts him at odds with the norms of Kryn society, and distances him from his peers. As he gets older he discovers that he can shape his dreams however he wishes. It's a useful tool. An escape. An indulgence.

    When he starts seeing Caleb in his dreams, however, his control - and his grasp on what is real - begins to fray.

    Summary

    Grief in general is a difficult thing for Fjord to wrap his head around. He hasn’t truly grieved a terrible loss before; never had anything he couldn’t bear losing before. Now—he can’t imagine losing Caduceus. Can hardly imagine a day without him. “Do you think it gets easier?”

    “Oh,” Caduceus says, “Everything gets easier, I think.” 

    ---

    After everything, Caduceus and Fjord find a little house on a cliff by the sea, and a life follows.

    Summary

    Essek was never so deluded as to think that his sins would never catch up to him at some point, but even he never expected it to come in this particular fashion, in the form of a powerful attacker from his past coming to his mother with honeyed promises of greater political power in exchange for an arranged marriage with Essek himself - to say nothing of the fact that the man brings enough blackmail material on behalf of certain interested parties to force Essek into playing along on pain of a traitor's death if he doesn't.

    Essek is left alone to stare down the prospect of a nightmarish captive future, and to wonder if he's really considered the forms that a fate worse than death can take.

    Fortunately, it turns out that he's never as alone as he thinks he is. The Mighty Nein are more observant than he gives them credit for even now and they - especially Caleb - make plans of their own to set things right.

    Summary

    Caleb has a mind that counts things.

    He counts coin. The passing hours. His remaining stocks of spell components. And, right now, the number of seconds since Essek Thelyss met his eyes and died.

    (In which Caleb makes use of his transmuter's stone.)

    Summary

    there’s a presence always at his shoulder that he never noticed, and now it’s gone and he feels like he’s blind on one side. every time fjord goes to look for caduceus, to laugh at something jester’s done, for an explanation on why that plant looks the way it does, for guidance, to soothe that buzzing feeling in his chest, to steal that last cup of tea he always needs to fall asleep, he’s not there.

    or: post-travelercon, caduceus is mistaken for kotho. the mighty nein, their half-orc especially, are not happy about this.
